, i think it is easier because the feeling in europe is that it's okay for john kerry to talk tough on the talk shows, over the weekend, no disrespect meant, but russia is closer to us. on the psychological level. it's worth $400 billion a year in trade for the eu. you have the ongoing basis of energy supplies from russia, gas in particular. the germans take a third of their total gas supply from the russians. it's a very much more involved relationship, and it's one i think that the europeans are conscious of not pulling the plug on, unless they really have to. so i think that might account for why it appears, at least, in terms of the pace of this sanctions process, that the europeans are moving in a slightly slower gear. >> simon from brussels with the latest from there, thanks so much. >>> there are conflicting reports whether the u.s. has issued that ultimat ultimatum to surrender. black sea fleet including an attack submarine and three war ships are based at the at the port of sevastopol. wife,000 russian soldiers to be in the city. last weekend president pient sent in 6,000 m

if the m imea. but john kerry who visited the capitol of kiev and president obama insisted what vladimir putin says does not match what's happening on the ground. >> i don't think that's fooling anybody. i think everybody recognizes that although russia has legitimate interests in what happens in a neighboring state, that does not give it the right to use force as a means of exerting influence inside of that state. >> we condemn the russian federation's act of aggression. it is clear that russia has been working hard to create a pretext for being able to invade further. russia has talked about russian-speaking minority citizens who are under siege. they're not. and in fact this government has acted remarkably responsibly by urging total calm. >> now, today mr. putin would not acknowledge to reporters that russian troops were even in crimea, but he did say his intentions are not a takeover of crimea. >> we are not going to go to wor with ukraine, but you crepe has the army. i want you to understand clearly. if we do this, it will only be to protect local people. >> now, russia plans to me
